Trail description

The bike park comprises of two distinct zones; the Dirt Jump Zone and the Downhill Zone.

The Dirt Jump Zone has a series of graded dirt jumps with a linear pump track to get you started. The Dirt Jumps vary from beginner to advanced and are marked with 'Freeride' signs to represent the level of difficulty.

The downhill zone starts from the wooden start tower, with four interlink runs down the hillside to the valley bottom, each run includes a series of rock drops and jumps and finishes at a the Blue Adventure Trail Climb from post 8.

 Please match your equipment and skill to the terrain you are riding on.

I went round on a 18" bmx was good fun was really slippery due to weather but overall was really good there needs to be a quicker route. Back to main car park and wasn't very well marked out when I wanted to take short cuts also the jumps need rebuilding there is no where near enough kick overall it was good tho

Went round tThe red route on a bmx 18" was good but very wet and sludgy due to the weather the jumps need rebuilding no where near enough kick and the down hill run was great fun didn't fall of once.

Hi, The red route is designed for Mountain Bikes equipped with trail specific tyres, so a BMX with 20" wheels will have a negative effect on your experience. The dirt jumps are regularly reviewed and updated by experienced and professional dirt jumpers and builders, we do appreciate your feedback and will pass on your suggestions at the next review.

I Loved the downhill section. I did it 6 times. You really get some speed up. A good quality bike with good suspension and rider skill is a must. It's not one for the faint hearted.
